G'day, I'm Bede.
I am an art director who takes great pleasure in creating award - winning advertising, design, digital and social media wares. I live in Marrickville with my main squeeze and two sons, one of the human kind and the other the canine variety.
After studying graphic design at Shillington College and winning the prestigious ‘Some of the weirdest shit we've ever seen – which will ironically mean they'll be famous in a few years’ award, I set my sights on a career in advertising. I've since completed Award School and on graduation night I was proud to have my work displayed on ‘The Wall’.
I'm a former teammate – and current friend – of many employees at agencies like Ogilvy & Mather and DigitasLBi, where I undertook projects of all shapes and sizes for a variety of brands. I’m talking everything from KFC to Mission Australia, spanning TV, print, packaging, digital, social media, content creation and branding. My diverse skill set is as changeable as the clients, ranging from paid media to developing creative strategy and everything in between. I’ve also won awards for design, experiential and digital campaigns.
When I'm not vigorously wringing the ideas towel dry, I love to spend time with my little family, enjoy a good cup of coffee and paint colourful murals – which you can see in my "play" gallery.
If you'd like to have a chat about ideas and opportunities, don't be a stranger.
